There was good news last night when Yohan Cabaye was named as a substitute, and then came on after 72 minutes, and just a couple of minutes later almost scored with a stunning free kick from out on the left wing.
Demba Ba – while at West Ham
That showed that the injury the French International picked up last Sunday at Anfield was only slight, and he will be able to line up against West Ham on Sunday afternoon.
And more good news about Newcastle’s injured players from Sunday, as Alan Pardew has said that Demba Ba is fit and ready to go against his former club – West Ham United – on Sunday afternoon.
This is what Alan Pardew said in the local press today:
“Demba looks fine and Cabaye has made his comeback.” “Danny Simpson, we will have to wait and see.”
The 27 year-old Senegal International has recovered from his thigh injury, which forced him to come off the field after only 4 minutes into the second half last Sunday, and it seems that precautionary move has paid off for Newcastle, and he’s fit to face the Hammers.
That’s good news for Newcastle and Ba will be trying to score against his former club, where he spent only four months at the club.
And while his time at the London club was short, his record was excellent – and he scored 7 goals in just 13 appearances for West Ham – but was unable to save them from relegation in May of last year.
We hope Demba Ba can remind West Ham just how good a goalscorer he is on Sunday.
Howay The Lads!!
